Why don't you take it. Since you seem to be the only one concerned.

I don't think double dipping is allowed.

I see no reason why a recreational crabber should have that many pots.

There were several reasons why the hours were cut to reduce crab harvests and some full time commercial crabbers benefitted from them. One was because of crab pot thievery. Anyone seen pulling crab pots in the Bay after 2 pm was automatically illegally pulling pots. This curtailed people from raiding their crabs and stealing crab pots in the evening when the full time commercial  crabbers were off the water and done for the day. The 2 pm quitting time also kept the  double dipper  commercial crabbers that hurt the bottom lines of full time watermen off the water after work from skimming extra crabs from the Bay as these moonlighter commercial crabbers competed for crabs , created a glut at times, helped diminish the crab population  and kept prices down for the  full time commercial crabbers.. That's why recreational crabbers are allowed to crab until sunset.
I really don't believe someone like me running 50 pots (if i chose to do so) in one area all season after work twice a week is going to hurt the bottom line of a full time guy with his 900 pots who follows the crabs. So with the time cut it really just means that someone who worked nights or weekends as i did in my former job is free to trotline weekday mornings and someone with a 9-5 job cant.

Ah the benefits of working a shift other then the day time . I loved crabbing during the week in the daytime. Beat the weekends for sure. Also helped with the Friday trash pick up of the crab shells.  Now that I'm semi-retired, I'm loving the aspects of daytime crabbing even more.
Hope we all have a good season.

I agree, we should be promoting people that are willing to work hard and go the extra mile.
